Almost all of the stage runs along several provincial roads. The route passes through many small vilages, typical of this region of Galicia.
We leave Portomarin along the calle Chantada which leads us to the highway. At this point we have to take a footbridge (photo 1) across the river. After crossing the river we take a right and take a dirt path leading uphill until the LU-633 road (photo 2). Along a footpath parallel to the road we come to the four houses which make up Toxibo (photo 3). We continue in the same direction as the road, but a bit isolated from it because of some trees, and further along we return to the road and arrive to Gonzar.

At the end of Gonzar and leave the road taking a detour to the left (photo 5) which will lead us to Castromaior.
(3)Castromaior-(4)Hospital de la Cruz: 9.0-11.4 (2.4 km)
We cross Castromaior and at the end of the town we are met with a tough slope (photo 6) along which after 700 metres we come to the LU-633 road. We follow the road until the 11 km (photo 7) where we leave it and continue along path which leads us to Hospital de la Cruz.
(4)Hospital de la Cruz-(5)Ventas de Naron: 11.4-12.9 (1.5 km)
Past Hospital de la Cruz we pass over a bridge across the N-540 (photo 8). At the end of the bridge we take a small road to the right which brings us directly to Ventas de Naron.
(5)Ventas de Naron-(6)Ligonde: 12.9-15.9 (3.0 km)
We cross Ventas de Naron and follow the same road (photo ) which leads us uphill until Ligonde (photo 10).

We continue along the same road (photo 12) passing through the small village of Portos and further along we come to Lestedo.
(8)Lestedo-Palas de Rei: 19.7-24.9 (5.2)
Continuing along the same road (photo 13) we pass through the small villages of Os Valos and A Mamurria before arriving to A Brea (photo 14) where the small road along which we have been travelling joins the highway (photo 15) We follow the footpath of the highway until the small village of Avenostre where we take a left, leaving the road and heading in the direction of O Rosario and Os Chacotes, where there is a hostel. From here there is only a few metres left to Palas de Rei, a town which we enter along the calle Cruciero.
